Stranded out on Burgundy with nothin'
But trouble on your mind
Paying for your lovin'
Not knowin' what it is you're tryin' to find

You live in Annie's kitchen and you die in all your dreams
Things you fall in love with are never what they seem
Down on Percy Street you're lying in a gambler's arms
Over thirty-seven dollars
Where you were last night

You came in from Shreveport town
Lookin' for somethin' you could feel
Full of youth and crooked truth
Sellin' every line that you could steal

You found yourself hustlin' down on Royal and Tolouse
When all your hopes and wishes started feelin' like a noose
Ever since you hit this town, your heart ain't been the same
And the reasons that are grievin' you are the same reasons that you came

Don't let your love bring you down
Some dreams you can't chase now

Southern belles are ringin' and shining in their Sunday morning clothes
You're outside the liquor store, tryin' to hide what everybody knows
You're lookin' for some money, smellin' like a cheap hotel
Tellin' everybody how you just got out of jail
Duckin' round corners, tryin' to beat the heat
Before they throw you back in jail just for dyin' on the street

Don't let your love bring you down
Some dreams you can't chase now
